Photo Sunday: Wat Phnom

Wat Phnom of Cambodia

It is believed that in the past century, there was a massive destructive flood which wiped out people in greater Phnom Penh and the only Wat which stood until today to attest to its mighty power and which serves to deter challenges in ordinary Khmer lives is the famous Wat Phnom. I had the rare opportunity to see this for myself and what captured me is its powerful symbol both in the context of the past of Cambodia and how it reaches for the future.
